As the sun sets get ready for live music, theme nights, movies and stage spectaculars. Now that's what you call a holiday!
Start with a pre-dinner drink or catch up with friends over cocktails. Then take your seat in the Marquee Theatre for a musical production, laugh your head off at a comedy show, rock on to our live bands, singers, specialty acts and musicians. Or watch the stars on the Big Screen at a recent-release movie.
Cocktail Nights give you the chance to dress up and dance the night away. Everything's open till late, including our casino.
Every cruise features a variety of shows and entertainment. Our high-energy Las Vegas style revues are choreographed and produced especially for P&O Cruises. The specially designed theatre allows you to sit back and relax in perfect comfort, while you enjoy a drink and the show. Here are some of the highlights of our current shows:
